Miguel Concepcion recently posted a healthy reminder that gamers CAN be bibliophiles — especially where books about video games are concerned. Behold, the 25 Best Video Game Coffee Table Books.
These books look awesome. Among them:
- 1001 Video Games You Need To Play Before You Die. Enough said.
- Dawn: The Worlds Of Final Fantasy, an art showcase by Yoshitaka Amano, the series’ main character designer through FFVI.
- Ico: Castle In The Mist, the only novel on the list, translated from Japanese.
- Portal 2 Collector’s Edition Guide, a strategy guide with an artwork section included.
- i am 8-bit: Art Inspired by Classic video games of the ‘80s
- The Art of The Mass Effect Universe, which hopefully adheres to Mass Effect canon with a little more integrity than the recent novel.
